MOESM3 of The intestinal microbiota regulates host cholesterol homeostasis

Additional file 3: Figure S2: microbiota depletion does not alter hepatic VLDL production. (A) Hepatic relative expression of genes related to VLDL production in conventionally raised (Conv-R) and microbiota depleted mice (AB-Mdpl). (B) Triglycerides accumulation in the blood of tyloxapol injected mice, reflecting VLDL secretion. Data are represented as mean ± SEM, n = 8–10 mice / group. Data were analyzed with Mann-Whitney test.
